The PDPA has made a further distinction between Personal Data and Business Contact Information which specifies the scope of application of the Act itself.
“Personal Data” refers to data about an individual who can be identified from that data; or from that data and other information that the organisation is likely to have access. On the other hand, “Business Contact Information” is defined as “an individual’s name, position name or title, business telephone number, business address, business electronic mail address or business fax number and any other similar information about the individual, not provided by the individual solely for his personal purposes.”
The PDPA does not cover Business Contact Information.
For the avoidance of doubt, all references to “Services” shall include our event management platform (“the Platform”), applications, technological tools, products, features and offering that is made available by us to our Customers and/or Users. All references to “Client” herein shall refer to an individual or entity who has engaged and/or entered into an event management agreement with us for the purposes of using our Services for, inter alia, a specific event or as the case may be. All references to “Attendee” herein shall include an individual or entity who has registered an account with our Services for the purposes of attending the said event.
Acceptance of the Policy
Which information we may collect on Attendees?
We collect two types of data and information:
A. Non-personal Information
The first type of information is non-identifiable and anonymous information (“Non-personal Information“). To put it simply, we have no idea what is the identity of the User from which we have collected the Non-personal Information. Like most websites on the Internet the Non-personal Information which is being gathered consists of technical information and behavioral information, without limitation, details such as:
- Type of operation system (e.g. Windows, Linux, etc.)
- Type of Browser (e.g. Firefox, Chrome etc.)
- Browser and keyboard language (e.g. English)
- IP Address
- Your approximate geographic location
- Any Similar technical information
- User activity such as log-ins, date, and time of access.
- Overall, impersonal statistical information regarding the total amount of e-mails that were sent, received, opened and/or hyperlinks clicked by the recipient(s).
- Personal Information
The other type of information is individually identifiable information (“Personal Information”). To put it simply, this information may identify an individual or is of a private and/or sensitive nature. Personal Information which is being gathered consists of any personal details provided voluntarily by the User (e.g. User’s name, email address, company etc.) mainly by registration to the Platform and/or sync services of such Personal Information on our Platform. The clicks, mouse movements and similar information with regard to the User’s session (e.g. the fact that User has chosen to click on a certain link or access a certain webpage) may be identifiable and regarded as Personal Information. We also respect and treat any email you may send to us as Personal Information.
To avoid confusion, rest assured that any Non-personal Information combined with Personal Information shall be regarded as Personal information.

What information do we collect on Attendees?
Information during the registration process.
Additionally our client may request to implement tracking codes (facebook pixels, Google analytics) for their own purposes for which GSI holds no responsibility.
Information required for the registration process.
Our Clients (Event Organisers) can set up event registration pages to collect any information from Consumers in connection with registration for an Organiser’s event listed on the Services.
